960 Danish Gambit

People are afraid to play gambits for the irrational fear that opponents can follow master analysis until the book says they're on the verge of equality or maybe even a plus (depending on the gambit's riskiness).

It's nonsense, because when inexpert players have to find their own moves — whether at the 2nd turn or the 20th — they play poorly enough to ensure that the gambit player always has practical chances.

At Chess960, the players are thinking on their own immediately, which favors the bold and principled.
